    Unhappy atheros ar9170 usb adapter

    I just bought an ar9170 usb network adapter since I'm running BT4 on VMware and had no luck with my integrated Realtek RTL8187SE. In case you're wondering, I'm running Vistax64 on an alienware m17.

    After installing the drivers, I finally got feedback from the airmon-ng command:

    Interface Chipset Driver

    ath0 AR9001U Otus

    Next was to try an airodump, to which I received:

    ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211,
    ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead. Make
    sure RFMON is enabled: run 'airmon-ng start ath0 <#>'
    Sysfs injection support was not found either.

    And finally, airmon-ng start ath0 9

    Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
    If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
    a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

    PID Name
    4601 dhclient3
    4740 dhclient3
    Process with PID 4740 (dhclient3) is running on interface ath0


    Interface Chipset Driver

    ath0 AR9001U Otus (monitor mode enabled)

    But, airodump continues to say give the same response, and I can't get it to work. =\

    Try killing dhclient3 process.
    # man kill

    Alright, I killed the processes, but the error message remains the same:

    ARP linktype is set to 1 (Ethernet) - expected ARPHRD_IEEE80211,
    ARPHRD_IEEE80211_FULL or ARPHRD_IEEE80211_PRISM instead. Make
    sure RFMON is enabled: run 'airmon-ng start ath0 <#>'
    Sysfs injection support was not found either.

    It says that monitor mode is already enabled...

    ath0 AR9001U Otus (monitor mode enabled)

    Try switching the 'airmon-ng start' command for this:
    Code:
    ifconfig <if> down
    iwconfig <if> mode monitor
    ifconfig <if> up
    Let me know if it works.

    How to get ar9170 chipset usb adapter working

    or to use the existing OTUS driver:
    This driver requires its own supplicant driver for wpa_supplicant 0.4.8. You can download it here.
